Business of Seanad

I am sorry. I do not mean to cut across the Minister. Could I propose an amendment to the Order of Business that the House will suspend for a sos until 5.15 p.m., once the Minister concludes, and No. 3 will be taken then. Following that we will take No. 4, statements on childhood obesity on the conclusion of No. 3 and No. 5, Private Members' business, will be taken on the conclusion of No. 4. The time allotted for the Private Members' business debate is two hours. Is that agreed?

On a point of order, the Leader came in previously and said this session would be extended until 4.30 p.m. If the Minister is available until then she might take more than eight minutes.

No, I am sorry but the order was for eight minutes. We are delaying matters.

The order was changed.

A change was proposed.

The Leader came in previously and extended the debate to 4.30 p.m.

That is wrong. We have changed it again, if that is agreed.

We have not agreed it.

I am asking if the change is agreed before I call on the Minister and give her eight minutes to conclude.

This is a different time schedule.

I am sorry. The Minister can sit for a moment. Procedurally, I wish to get the change agreed. Is the amendment to the Order of Business agreed? Agreed.
